Winnipeg Hosts National Conference For Second Time

Posted on

For the second time in five years, Winnipeg’s own CKUW Campus/Community Radio and The Winnipeg Campus Radio Society will be hosting the annual National Campus/Community Radio Conference in downtown Winnipeg. Workshops will be held at the University of Winnipeg during the day. The conference also features three nights of concerts with some of Winnipeg’s best musical talent, including Paper Moon, Telepathic Butterflies, Greg MacPherson and many more.

NCRC serves as the annual general meeting for the National Campus.Community Radio Association (NCRA/ANREC) and is a chance for community and campus radio volunteers and staff to get together. The conference features intense skill-building workshops, excellent parties, the Standard Campus/Community Radio Awards, and a full day Women's Conference.

Since 1981, the NCRC has given non-profit radio staff and volunteers a great opportunity to meet radio enthusiasts from all over, share ideas, initiate new projects, and celebrate excellence within non-profit radio communities.

This year, the conference will feature an address by journalist Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!, an international, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on over 140 stations in North America.
